So here we sit.
4 Weeks in.
The first week we had 72 of you guys saying…YES!!! I am going to get healthy and lose that MuffinTop!!!
Let’s see how many people fill are here at week 4.
I’m thinking by Tuesday this widget will have 40ish people in it.
But SUPRISE ME!!! You can do it. Trust me.

So this week was a great week for me.
I have 2 goals.
1. Run a marathon in 18 weeks.
2. Weigh in at 175

See below how I am doing…

My runs are displayed below.
[RSS I think you have to come to the site to see it]
Yea. You are not seeing things.
9 MILES this morning.
And it was tough.
Randy and Spence would be proud.
Some people have been asking me what marathon training program I am using.
I’m using Hal Higdon’s Novice One program.
It is a great program and I have been really pleased with it so far.
Remember. 5 weeks ago, I had not run more than 2 miles only like 3 times in the past 15 years.
I was sucking wind and barfing on my runs.
And now I’m a champ in short shorts…

OK people. Go back to that week one link and encourage everyone not to fall off the wagon.
Your Turn…
